UHE STORM OF NOVEMBER 21, 1921.
Mammoth Plot Springs--Yellov.stone Park, Wy o •
At 6 a.m. the snow changed to a mixture of snow and sleet,
which continued until 1:50 p.m., when it changed to ruin, sleet
and. snow. At 4:15 p.m. the temperature bep-an to fall rapidly
and sleet and snow again set in. From 1:50 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.
there were sudden -c-nd. rapid temperature fluctuations, ranging
^g^effi 14° %& 33°. This sudden change in temperature at short
intervals caused a corresponding change in the kind of precipi-
tation, changing frequently from sleet and snow to sleet and
rain, and vice versa.' From 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. light fog formed
and disappeared at intervals, as a result of the sudden mixing
of air currents of widely different temperatures* Low stratus
clouds or fog obscured the nearby mountains on all sides of the
station during the day. Unusually light, variable winds prevailed.
As sleet was falling with a surface temperature of -5° u t G :30 a.m -r'
it is evident that a steep temperature inversion prevailed, which
probably account* for the^ freakish conditions that occurred during
the day. At the time of the a.m. observation stratus clouds were
moving rapidly from the west, while the surface wind was four
miles from the north. A chinook condition set in shortly before
10 p.m. end the temperature rose from zero at 8:15 p.m. to 30
at 10 p.m.. Precipitation ended at 9:?0 p.m. ^nd the sky cleared
suddenly with the coming of the Chinook. At 6 p.m. there v. ere
9.6 inches of snow on the -round, with about half an inch of
crust on the top.

Hail 19 21 Monthly Report.
Dear Mr. Lindaleyi
Mar report on the activities of the ranger
force for the month of November 1921 follows:
Change of Positions*
Mr. J^nes MoBride, former Chief Ranger
of the Yellowstone National Park was placed in
charge of the fish and game* and the Slough Creek
and Yancey hay meadows of the park, this order
talcing ef feot November 6th. This move releases
Mr. MoBride of many embarrassing responsibilities
and places him in work which is very familiar
to him and gives him a greater opportunity to
devote his time and study to the care of the game
of the park.
the change does not affect the Northern dis-
trict at this time. Mr. MoBride has charge of
the patrols and is responsible for the protection
of the Northern district until further orders.
Mr. Sam T. uoodring, park ranger in charge
of the Canyon Banger Station during the past
tourist season* succeeds Mr. MoBride as Chief
Hanger • Mr. Woodring was a former Pack-master of
the United States Army before accepting a posi-
tion as a permanent ranger in July 1919. Previ-
ous to this time* while a packer he became well
acquainted with the interior of the park under
the supervision of the military.
Mr. Woodring assumed the duties of the Chief
Ranger November 6th, and is responsible for the
protection and the men in the Southern, Eastern,
and Western districts of the park.
Clneular No. 25, authorising this change of
management follows s
Circular Ho. 25 Hov. I 9 1921.
This circular becomes effect Ire November 6th.
It relates to a re-assignment of duties in conn-
ection with the protection of the parte.
Chief Banger James McBride will assume the
duties of the feme and Fish Warden of Yellowstone
National Park* which will include the development
of plans for further stocking of the streams of
the park with fish and cooperation with the Bur-
eau of Fisheries in the collection of eggs and in
the operation of fish hatcheries. He will also con-
tinue to travel thru the park for the purpose of
observing conditions of the wild life, particularly
the big game animals, and report to the Superin-
tendent on his obersvations and advise him on mattes
relating to the care of the wild life.
Until further orders he will be in charge of,
and responsible for the protection of the Horth
line and the game of the Northern district. He will
be relieved of the responsibility for protectee*
of the other lines of the park and of the game and
other natural conditions in the Southern and West
ern districts. He will continue to supervise oper-
ations of the Slough Creek hay ranches.
Park Banger Sam T. Woedring will assume the
duties of Chief Hanger of Yellowstone national
Park, except such as will be naturally within the
Jurisdiction of the Game and Pish arden. He will
immediately become responsible for all property
used by the ranger force, including ranger sta-
tions, equipment , supplies, etc. He will also
become responsible for and will be charged with
the protection of wild life and all other natural
conditions and for the guarding of the line covered
by the Vestern and Southern districts. He will con-
trol all hunting of predatory animals. He will
make his headquarters at Mammoth Hot Springs and
will be free to travel at will throqgh the park.
He will make plans for next season's operations,
including the organization of the temporary force,
the planing of additions to the trail system, the
making of a program for cutting out trails, and
take all other steps necessary and essential in
the organization for operations in the way of pro-
tecting the park next year-
He will observe the work of all members of
the ranger force and report his findings and con-
clusions to the Superintendent in connection with
his plans for the organization of next year v s pro-
tectiTa for... %$»ileri!«fffc»".
Con f t.

and Eocky Mountain White Fish* The game fish sea-
son does not open until May 29th, •
The following table shows the number of big
animals killed this year*
Very favorable weather conditions prevailed
until November 15th. Heavy snow storms sinsehthat
date haws' left snow in the following depths at
our numerous gauging stations*

Very few of the big game aniamals left the ridges
for lower levels until about the 20th of the month, when
the first big bands of elk were seen in the northern district.
The elk in the eastern and southern district did not
begin to leave the park until about this time.
An excellent increase is reported in the elk herds*
Many calves are tobe seen with the herds in th e Hell-
roaring and Slough Creek districts. Deer are plenti-
ful and Game Warden MoBrlde reports 405 antelope, to
having counted this number near Gardiner*
Cont f .
No horses were used by the men In malting their
patrols In the interior of the park after November 16.
Ass't* Chief Hanger Douglas beought the Upper Yell-
owstone* Lake* and Sylvan Pass horses to :ianmoth on
November 4th, Contrary to plans made by Ass't* Chief
Ranger Seoycn of the Western district* his horses*
from the Gallatin and Hirer side stations were brought
to *!aramoth November 16th* 4 heavy storm Nor* 15th*
made this more necessary*
A heavy crust and a light snowfall made siding
a pleasure in most districts of the park November 17.
Little difficult is encountered by the men in making
their long patrols*
Big Game Orders.
Complying with the authorization of the Director
of the Park Service* we begun our preparations to cap-
ture three elk and four young buffalo for the New
York Zoo* Buffalo Keeper Lacombe selected for excell-
ent specimens of buffalo* ?hese aniamls are all two

thses animals were trucked to riammoth November 20,
and the remaining two* November 26th*
Preparations were made November 2tth to trap
three young cows for the New York Zoo* The trap used
to catmh theee elk was built by Game V/arden HcBride
in the auto camp at Mammoth Hot Springs* fft de not
antislpate any trouble catching these animals*
Contrary to the sentiment expressed in my report
for th month of October the following predatory ani-
mal bunting permits were issued; these permits limited
the hunters to an area away from the antelope range*
and were made clear in respect to disturbing the big
game in the district*

Oame -arden MoBrlde has counted 405 antelope on the
Gardiner Range. This is an increase of almost 100 cm
over last year. They are in excellent condition and
have little or no trouble finding all the feed the/
need. They are being hered back from the line fence
whenever the occasion demands. So far we do not know
of any being killed by predatory animals.
\ notlcable feature of the Increase is in the
yearliis^s. These animals are almost matured and hare
a tendency to feed well back in the hills of the
The bears have caused no damage at axry of the
cabins, stations or hotels in the park this fall.
The last bear seen this year was on November 23rd
in the northern district.
Buffalo — i Id herd.
As mentioned in my last report, no effort has
been made to locate these animals. Two were seen in
the Upper Yellowstone district and five on Cache
oreek. Two calves were Included in the later band.
Buffalo - Tame Herd.
g^P Con ditions.
Buffalo Tame Herd*
In completeing the statistics of the tamo herd
for the year, seventy four calves, or 11 more than
were previously accounted for, are tobe added to ow
record* In addition to this number, there are nine
young calves, not accounted for In this number, nor
have been weaned or vaccinated at the annual vaccin-
Two calves, a bull and a cow, were killed as
an aet of mercy, following a broken leg Injury in
each instance, sustained during the vaccination in
the squeze. An improvement has been made in the
shoot which will, in the future, prevent similar
accidents* These animals are not accounted for in
the above mentioned figure*
The first vaccination of the calf herd was
made by Dr. Hell Plank of the Animal Husbandry Div.
of the D. of A* at Helena, Montana, on November 26*
The second tobe held one week later*
The cutting of the calves from the cows was pew
formed Hovember 2£nd and was the most successful
in the history of the ranch* The blinding of the
corral fence at the ends and the construction of the
hhavy sliding gates, made the work much easier and
prevented any injury to the animals* The only diff-
iculty encountered was the shortage of fresh horses,
which would make it easier on both man, beast and

ing of bucks with visable horns only, resulted in

tire Morthern district and are in excellant con-
dition* Game harden McBrlde reports having counted
more than two hundred in the district*
Many bucks with great large heads, and strong
body are wintering near Mammoth* Que of the largest
bucks, from &9er^ standpoint has been seen at Mamm-
oth on several occasions* He is considered the finest
speciman in the park*
game Conditions *
Again we are favored with ideal conditions for
oar elk herds* Forage is plentiful in eJJ sections
of the park, the snov: is in not hindering them in
their travels, and the majority are rolling fat,
•specially the cows and calves,
The increase in the calf crop is very motic-
able, more than the average can "be seen vzith each
herd. Many large hulls* with excellent heada are
winter between Maanoth and £woer Falls.
Came Warden MoBride, in investigating the elk
herds reports 5,600 in the northern District* They
remained high in the mountains until November 20th*
In preparation for any unexpected condl.iou,
the men at the Slough Creek Eqy l.anches were in-
structed to begin feeding Hov* 28th* $hey are feed-
ing about one ton per day, at each ranch*
Following the procedure adopted last year, men
are stationed with horses a.t Hell roaring and Slough

patrol Is made from Gardiner and I!amwoth over she
Turkey Pen and Blacktail to hold them back.
Por^y elk broke through the fence on the Korth
line at Hoppe Creek but were heried back and the
fence repaired by Park "anger McLaughlin* Hone of
this band were killed*
fhe elk in the Southern and Eastern herds did
not begin to leave the park until the last of the
month* Ho count was reported, but it is claimed they
have increased considerable over last year*
Hocse are plentiful over the entire x*ark* More
than 500 being accounted for in the northern district*
They are wintering in large numbers on the Black ^ail
and in the Slough Creek districts.
Moose in the Upper Yellowstone are numerous.
Bangers Bowman and Butler had to talcs rofage in trees
on several occasions when encountering bulls*
A careful check will be made and a special re-
port made at a later date*

Many wolf traclcs have been seen in the Mansaoth
and Biack rail districts* a special effort will be
made to capture and kill entire band*
